A user of MRP System is always anxious to balance total aggregate (or units) lateness with total cost (sum of the inventory carrying cost and the set-up cost). This book seeks to give better solutions to managers managing MRPsystems in manufacturing organizations. It introduces the concept of multi-pass heuristics in MRP context and shows that in variety of conditions of the shop floor (such as high and low variations in machine utilisation) these (multi-pass given in this book) can be applied togive better performance on the criterion of total aggregate (or units) lateness with insignificant rise in total costs. About Author : R R K Sharma is heading the Department of Industrial and Management Engineering, IIT, Kanpur, for the ppast over two years. A PhD in management from IIM, Ahmedabad, to IIT students for the last over 18 years. Well versed with all the facets of management, he has unique ability to integrate different areas of the subject. To date, he has written over 33 papers in international/national journals. Contents : Preface 1. Material Requirement Planning (MRP) System 2.
